Some of his comments made sense. Short lease. Watching like a hawk BUT: still no explanation of WHY they abandoned the Coalition and have alienated NDP and Bloc.
Maybe the press, the media aren't asking the right questions.
Newman focuses on election, but look at this from Constitution Acts: House Rules
Several prominent deans, professors
give a unified take on how the GG would proceed.

"A few of them odder that others..."

Love that line.

I saw it and Rae seemed decidedly uncomfortable. He must have said "Don't read anything into this" about three times.

I'm not sure if he was uncomfortable. Maybe a tad defensive. But like a good journalist, Newman was giving him a tough ride. I thought Bob held his own, and did a good job getting our message out.
